Vilebrequin, the most iconic swimwear brand to date, was created in 1971 in Saint Tropez by Fred Prysquel. The name Vilebrequin, which means “crankshaft”, gets its name from the creator’s passion for cars.The pronunciation is a bit tricky if you don’t know a little french, it goes something like: Vil-bre-ken. Back in the 70s the swim briefs were the popular style, Fred Prysquel revolutionized the swimwear fashion designing colorful shorts made out of spinnaker canvas and a cut inspired by surfer’s trunks. It quickly became popular on the beaches of Saint Tropez and from there to the world. With three collections a year; Spring – Summer, High-Summer – Autumn, over 100 colors, patterns and prints to choose from. It is clear why Vilebrequin is on top of the game in luxury swimwear. In the beautiful Caribbean, we enjoy the easy summer weather permanently and swim-shorts are like a second skin to me. This week I’m proud to partner with Vilebrequin and show you my favorite pieces from the new collection and enjoy together this “Summer All year Long” in the Caribbean Sea. …
Here they are: two polar bears in the caribbean! Once again thank you Vilebrequin!
Haha, I won the Vilebrequin Valentine’s Contest! Check out the winning answer and tell me what do you think. I’m very happy… i would be more happy if those two bears came with a pair of swim trunks and that chair and those sunglasses… but yeah, I can buy those, the polar bears are collectibles. Im very happy and I hope they take the idea and make something with it.
Vilebrequin, one of my favorite brands, made a collaboration with Havaianas and now we have this beautiful flip flops. For someone who’s constantly on the beach like me there’s no such thing as too many flip flops… or swim trunks. I will be getting a pair soon i hope.
